Great meal, from start to finish 👌
Fabulous Christmas Day meal
Atmosphere was relaxed but efficient Food was excellent and good value The staff welcoming and attentive
We had a lovely meal at Brunel's recently. The food was beautiful and service was second to none. Atmosphere was relaxed and not loud and hectic, as you would maybe expect at this time of year. Very pleasant evening, will definitely be back again.
Food was delicious, as was the wine and the cocktails. Staff were very friendly and the social distancing and hygiene set up couldnt be faulted. Can't wait to come back to try the tasting menu the next time!
Food was amazing, service let it down. could not get servers attention after ordering and waited to be seated for a long time after arriving, despite it being a quiet night. Loved the vegan options, well worth the price.
Took my wife here for her birthday and they really made her feel special and topped it off with a fantastic hamper for her, speaks volumes of the place. Absolutely EXCELLENT
Fantastic as always

Fabulous meal would highly recommend
We visit the Slieve Donard as a large family group 2-3 times a year and we always choose to eat at Brunels. This time we enjoyed Saturday tea and Sunday lunch - the food, wine and atmosphere all amazing!! Fiona really looked after us from booking right through - catering for the children and OAP’s. A great dining experience! Many thanks and see you soon. Nicola Graham and family 😊👍
Fantastic staff , easy atmosphere.
Great food as always.
Lovely to be back, thank you to all the staff.
Dining out is not just about food - the whole experience includes food, service, welcome, ambiance etc. Brunel’s was where I wanted to celebrate a significant birthday and I was not disappointed. Thank you to Paul and his whole team.
Had a small wedding lunch here yesterday! Wonderful lunch, super food, great atmosphere and truly great staff!! Highly recommended and well worth the drive there!
Meal was Fantastic, service is very good. I have been to Brunel’s on numerous occasions, but I do find that it can be overpriced in comparison to other local restaurants in Newcastle. I would be back more often if this wasn’t the case.
Excellent meals, friendly staff, and easily bird is excellent value for money
Lovely meal , great service
Overall an excellent experience. Thank you to Fiona and her team, we look forward to visiting again soon hopefully!
Excellent visit to Brunels for our anniversary dinner. We were very well looked after by Fiona and all the staff. Our table was opposite the kitchen and it was an absolute treat to watch the expertise of Paul and his team preparing our meals especially their attention to detail. All our courses were delicious and bursting with flavour especially the halibut. We’ve been going to Brunels for several years and it’s great to see them maintaining such a consistently high standard. Can’t wait for our next visit already !
